The Creativity Symposium hits TC! ☆

| April 28, 2011

After much of planning,  build up, and excitement, The Creativity, Imagination, and Innovation in Education Symposium is finally here! Registration begins at 6:00pm in Zankel’s main hallway (just inside the main entrance to TC) and refreshments will be served in the Everett Lounge. Attendees will find which workshop they’ve been assigned to (based on the preference given when first registering online) on their name tags.

At 6:45, Professor Margaret Crocco, co-chair of the event, will give some opening words of welcome before dispersing attendees to their workshop rooms. Follow the Symposium directional signs to find your room, or ask one of our volunteers who will be stationed throughout campus if you have any questions.

And just in case  you need a chuckle or another reason to get primed for the Symposium, check out this New Yorker article about cartoon caption contests, in which Keith Sawyer, one of our esteemed panelists in tomorrow morning’s seminar, is referenced:

In 2009, the creativity researcher Keith Sawyer interviewed a number of winners and found that, “cartoon contest winners usually generate lots of captions. Studies of creativity have shown that quantity breeds quality—what I call the productivity theory, because high productivity corresponds to high creativity.”

Have a laugh, enjoy the day, and we’ll see you tonight!
